Jada Pinkett Smith releases clips of new season of Red Table Talk with Ireland Baldwin, Kim Basinger – Daily Mail

Jada Pinkett Smith has released a new trailer for the upcoming season of Red Table Talk — but while the preview promises ‘powerful and healing conversations,’ there’s no hint that the show will address her husband Will’s dramatic slapping incident at the Oscars.

This season, Jada, 50, her daughter Willow Smith, 21, and her mother Adrienne Banfield-Norris, 68, are hosting stars including Janelle Monáe, Kim Basinger, and Kim’s daughter Ireland Baldwin.

In preview clips, both Kim and Ireland open up about battling anxiety, while Ireland reveals that she has been in multiple abusive relationships.

Red Table Talk, which premieres on April 20 at 9 a.m. PST, will also feature interviews with victims of the Tinder Swindler and Anna Delvey.

But Jada — who appears to have supported her husband, Will Smith, in his attack on Chris Rock at the Academy Awards last month — doesn’t say anything about the controversial moment in newly-released footage.

The new two-minute-long trailer shows Jada, Willow, and Adrienne sitting down with their guests in several pre-taped segments. 

They welcome on actress Kim Basinger, 68, and her daughter Ireland, 26, whom she shares with ex Alec Baldwin.

Both mother and daughter appear to speak candidly about mental health, with Kim discussing her battle with agoraphobia.

‘I wouldn’t leave the house, I would no longer go to dinner. I had to relearn how to drive,’ she says.

Ireland appears to have some mental health struggles as well, and is asked about having panic attacks. 

She also speaks candidly about some bad relationships.

‘I have been in physically abusive relationships, I have been in emotional, verbal, very gaslit, manipulative relationships. I’ve been through a lot of different kinds of abuse,’ she says.

Elsewhere, the hosts talk to the parents of Miss USA Cheslie Kryst, who died by suicide earlier this year, as well as a victim of the Tinder Swindler, Simon Leviev — who, she says, defrauded her out of over $100,000.

Also in the defrauded category is Rachel DeLoache Williams, who has spoken out about her friendship with Anna Sorokin, a.k.a. Anna Delvey. 

Rachel accused Anna of conning her out of tens of thousands of dollars. 

‘I finally ended up going to the police after months of breakdowns,’ she says in the trailer.

But as candid as the guests will be this season, its unclear how candid Jada will be about drama in her own life.

Though she has opened up about personal matters in the past — including affairs — the trailer makes no mention of how her husband slapped Chris Rock during the live Oscars broadcast last month after the comedian made a joke about her buzzcut. 

Jada has been open in the past about her struggles with alopecia. 

After the slap, Will returned to his seat and screamed ‘keep my wife’s name out of your f*****g mouth’ twice.  

The slap divided Hollywood and the public, with some insisting he should be stripped of his Oscar and not be rewarded for violence while others said dismissed it and mocked it on social media. 

Jada has not directly addressed the slap, though she did share an Instagram post that hinted at her approval.

‘This is a season for healing. And I’m here for it,’ she wrote. 

But while Jada has remained relatively silent on the controversial incident, the moment sparked outrage the world over — and led to Will being banned from attending the Oscars for ten years.

Two weeks after this year’s ceremony, where Will claimed the Best Actor award, minutes after his assault on Chris, the Academy issued the actor with a ten-year ban from all of its events, while issuing a statement blasting his ‘unacceptable’ and ‘harmful’ behavior.

‘During our telecast, we did not adequately address the situation in the room. For this, we are sorry,’ the Academy’s statement read. 

‘This was an opportunity for us to set an example for our guests, viewers and our Academy family around the world, and we fell short — unprepared for the unprecedented. 

‘The Board has decided, for a period of 10 years from April 8, 2022, Mr. Smith shall not be permitted to attend any Academy events or programs, in person or virtually, including but not limited to the Academy Awards.

‘We want to express our deep gratitude to Mr. Rock for maintaining his composure under extraordinary circumstances. We also want to thank our hosts, nominees, presenters and winners for their poise and grace during our telecast.’

In a statement on Friday afternoon after the decision was reached, Will told Deadline: ‘I accept and respect the Academy’s decision.’  

The actor had already resigned from the Academy when the ban was issued.
